godzilla and the angry inch ccr



Autoblog has been sending some big love Switzer's way this week, with not one but two big posts about the latest Tymme turbo terrors.

First, Switzer's latest R911S GT2 was released, with a power-to-weight ratio that simply "eviscerates" Porsche latest GT2 RS. You can check out Autoblog's post (with photo gallery) and the original Switzer release if you like, but the short story is this: substantially more GO.

A few days later, Autoblog posted the following video from Switzer's Swedish dealer Advan Performance, who ran their P800 GTR Nissan shop car against an equally powerful Koenigsegg CCR which had been effectively dispatching all challengers before lining up to the Advan car.

What happened next?





GODZILLA IS UNBEATABLE FROM A DIG


As you can see, the CCR had little hope of catching the GTR from a 30 mph roll, and only a roll from about 60 overcame the Nissan's magic traction advantages. It seems that, from a stop, the GTR is a class or two ahead of the Koenigsegg CCR ... which puts it in some pretty rare company.

Coming up: more Switzer v. Bugatti action. Stay tuned!
